R. Patrick AlcedoPatrick Alcedo is co-editor of Religious Festivals in Contemporary Southeast Asia, which was published in late 2016 by Ateneo de Manila University Press. Emphasizing the Philippines, essays in the edited collection explore embodied narratives in which the connections between religion and nationalism, globality and locality, tourism and politics are drawn. While religious festivals are expressions of communal faith, they empower as well political, social, and economic networks. Professor Alcedo chapter on Ati-atihan Festival in Kalibo is included in the collection.
